We are in the middle of a serious rough patch for trans people in the USA.

After Donald Trump's trans ban in the military and the Supreme Court upholding said ban, 2019 is not off to a good start for trans people. So seeing even one modicum of hope for trans people can help.


Tiffany Monroe, a 22-year-old YouTuber, has been walking us through her journey as a transgender woman.

Q&A; GET TO KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME! www.youtube.com

Trans women often have trouble dating because men are the worst.

But Tiffany shared that she was trans with this one guy and this was what she got back:

"It is the bare minimum but when you are in a society that treats trans women like dirt, we can be happy about the little wins we do get," Monroe said.

Some of the internet was really moved by this:





Transgender people are often the victims of hate crimes.

In 2018, 26 trans people were murdered.

The government's continued agenda against the transgender community has no doubt contributed to the rise of violence against them.





Sadly, even with this, Monroe received hate.

We won't share it here because it's horrendous.

But we will share what she said back to the haters:


We prefer the positive energy because that is where we stand too.





In 2019 we are only stanning open-minded men.

You got that, male population?



But just remember: the goal here is to make this the new LOW.

Not a high. We have a lot of work to do, fellow citizens.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
